A big water year doesn’t just mean the rivers are raging — it also means the local culverts are cranking, too. Case in point: the recent exploits of Culvert Boy around Paddling Life’s home romping grounds of Steamboat Springs, Colo.
“At my age you have to get your first descents any way you can,” says newly anointed Culvert Boy, touting pipe paddling’s multiple benefits, including not needing any sunscreen or much cfs. “I just started looking at some of them and thought it might be kind of cool to run them. They’re kind of dorky, but fun.”
